    MERCEDES BENZ IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2007 AND 2010 2500 AND 3500 SPRINTER VEHICLES. THE CORRECT INTERIOR TRIM COVERING THE A-PILLARS MAY NOT HAVE BEEN INSTALLED.

    MERCEDES-BENZ WILL CHECK TO SEE IF THE CORRECT TRIM COVER WAS INSTALLED AND, IF NOT, REPLACE THAT TRIM COVER WITH THE CORRECT ONE. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING FEBRUARY 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT MERCEDES-BENZ AT 843-695-5000.

    Potential Units Affected:34

    Defect Description:

    Cummings Mobility Conversion & Supply (Cummings) is recalling certain model year 2006-2014 Ford E-150, E-250, E-350, Chevrolet Express, 2006-2008 Dodge Sprinter, and 2009-2014 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, and 2013 Ford Transit Connect vehicles manufactured January 1, 2006, to October 8, 2014, equipped with certain model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, and S5510 wheelchair lifts manufactured by Ricon Corporation after January 1, 2006. The platform side plate of the affected wheelchair lifts may crack.

    Consequence:

    If the platform side plates crack, the lift platform can separate from the lift and come to rest against the vehicle's lift door. When the doors are opened, the platform may fall out, increasing the risk of injury to the lift operator.

    Action:

    Cummings will notify owners to take buses to a Ricon dealer or service center who will install supplemental platform support bumpers. Any platform that has already started cracking will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began January 13, 2015. Owners may contact Cumming's customer service at 1-800-639-5438 or Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884. Cumming's number for this recall is 14E-041.
